WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson made a successful 130 pound debut against Felix Caraballo, working him down to a sixth round stoppage victory in a non title fight at the MGM Grand Conference Center on Tuesday night.

Stevenson toyed with his opponent, breaking him down with every shot before, eventually ending the fight with a big body shot in the sixth round. The shot sent Caraballo to his knees and his gloves on the canvas and while stuck there because of the pains, the referee Tony Weeks was forced to end the fight at exactly 1:31 of the sixth.

With the win, the 2016 silver medallist Stevenson retained his unbeaten record and improved to (14-0, 8KOs). Stevenson was placed a 100-1 favourite, heading into the fight and he proved right the bookmarkers by winning all the five rounds (50-44, 50-44, 50-43) before the stoppage, dropping Caraballo (13-2-2, 9 KOs) twice in the first round…

Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has tipped December 14 as the potential date for the Andy Ruiz Jr. rematch, as he feels perfectly sure the rematch is going to happen.

Andy Ruiz Jr. shocked the world when he dropped Anthony Joshua four times en route to a seventh round stoppage victory that saw him claim the IBO, IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight world titles on June 1st.

The Rematch which initially was tipped for a UK venue jammed a road block, as the new unified champion said he wasn't willing to let Joshua and his team call the shots and more so fighting the Brit in the UK.

Eddie Hearn is 100% sure Anthony Joshua will be taking the rematch and doing so without a tune up fight.
"Joshua is one million percent taking this rematch. Fact," Hearn told iFL TV on Saturday.
"I spoke to Joshua last night. He is one million per cent taking this rematch. I haven't even been asked to look at other options.
"He doesn't want to take an interim bout. Maybe we should, but he doesn't want to take a small fight, he wants the big fight and that's Joshua-Ruiz two."
He went further to reveal the dates the Joshua team believe will be suitable for the Rematch and said they are also preparing to send Ruiz team the possible venues for the clash.
"We've provided the dates to Team Ruiz, now we've got to provide the venue," Hearn added.
"The dates are November 29 or December 14, those are the dates we're working on. Of the venues that have come on in the last week, one is very serious and we're very deep in conversation.
"I think the frontrunner is still Cardiff, December 14. Madison Square Garden is in the running too."
